God's Own Country

UK 2017 | 104 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

A moving British drama that takes place against the lush Yorkshire landscape. Johnny is a young man left to care for the family’s herd of sheep due to his father’s illness and grandmother’s old age. All his repressed emotions and fears are channeled through hard labor and excessive drinking at the local pub. A Romanian foreign worker who arrives to help on the farm rekindles not only dormant emotions in Johnny, but a promise for a different future. Francis Lee’s (better known for his acting career) first feature film is partially inspired by his own life story. The film was screened at Sundance and the Berlinale, winning numerous awards, critical acclaim, and comparisons to Brokeback Mountain.
